    My number one criteria for any politician: loyalty. Meg Whitman fails.

    You obviously don't know how your taxes get paid. There will be a record of Meg Whitman or the agency she went through paying those taxes out as the employer.

    So..Heh heh!

    My number 1 criteria for a politician is that they uphold the law. Meg Whitman is not at fault here. What is a massive fail is that this woman, a known fraud and illegal, hasn't been deported.

    Loyalty to ciminals? Sounds like you would have loved the chance to vote for Tony Rezko and Rod Blagojevich. Even Nixon showed loyalty to his people.

    Re: Meg Whitman Refutes Allegations by Former Housekeeper

    so THIS is what has become of the democrat campaign for governor of CA---w4 forms!

    LOL!

    meanwhile, unemployment statewide is 12.5%

    foreclosures are among the nation's leaders, despite the fact that our economy is as broad and diverse as all america

    sacto is totally solution-bereft, has been for a decade, as all our residents desperately watch their once golden state slip inevitably into the ocean

    ab32, forerunner and early model for cap and trade, contemplates the imposition of killer taxes, fines and fees on ENERGY---both production and consumption---based on bogus exaggerations of doom from the politically corrupt air resources board

    the central valley, formerly the finest farmland in the 48, is dying, 30% out of work, forcefully and willfully deprived of life giving water on behalf of some stupid smelt in the delta

    our schools are a catastrophe, youth on youth violence is ripping apart communities from richmond to east la

    our borders are broken, our biggest cities declare themselves sanctuaries, our prisons are bursting

    our freeways are parking lots, many of our best producers spend 12 hours a week commuting

    our budget is bankrupt, our politicians have given up, we have been leaderless since ahnold got his arse kicked by the nurses in the 05 special

    due to obamacare, medicaid has been expanded by several million with no federal funding, we are totally on the hook and alone

    are pensions are poison, our municipalities are as upside down as our state budget

    and moonbeam, who well earned his appellation during a long career of prominent public posturing, calls ms whitman a whore and demands w4's that have already been made public

    pathetic

    A governor that has no interest in his most personal employees most likely will have no interest in the regular folk of his state. Maybe you are okay with that, most people want a governor that cares enough about people. Knowing that they are not even interested in their closest employees would not sit well.

    So, why would the social security department send a letter indicating that they can't match the (taxes) with the employee if Meg didn't pay the mone ? Additionally, if she hadn't been paying taxes, I have no doubt the IRS would have been all over it by now. Do you really think the IRS wouldn't be aware? That's what tripped up all of the other individuals in that list someone else posted about cadidates that got caught up in illiegal immigrant scandals.
    The SSA said the SSN number submitted was registered to a different name. They sent another letter, and Whitman ignored both?

    The maid also took vacation time and told Whitman she could not return to Mexico during her vacations. Wouldn't that also raise a red flag?


    So you think she should have broken the law and engaged in racial profiling simply because she's a maid with brown skin and an accent? I'm just trying to pin down what you mean... BTW, you said it right here:
    My statement just states the fact that she didn't speak English well, and that would have caused Whitman to question her background. That in no way indicates that all people that don't speak English well are undocumented, but if they are legal Americans they usually have a good reason for not speaking English well. And considering Whitman's position on illegal hiring, there is no excuse for her to be complacent in her own situation.

    What did you mean if not that because Nicki didn't speak english very well, Whitman should have suspected?
    It is mandatory for American kids to go to school, where they learn English. Anyone that doesn't speak English well is either from another country or dropped out of school before they learned it, and most likely have parents that speak a different language. They don't have to be illegal, but it would certainly raise a red flag, and someone in Whitman's position, as much as she has spoken out against hiring illegals would have been more sensitive to it.

    The social security department did by sending a letter indicating, essentially, that they didn't know where to place these earnings. The IRS is essentially backing that up with the fact that nothing has happened regarding accusations of Meg not paying the taxes.
    I haven't seen any information where the IRS is backing up that she paid taxes.
    Even if she did, the fact that the SSN was questioned should have been investigated by the employer, Whitman. It is all rather confusing right now, because the immigration attorney is actually on the housekeeper's side and is trying to establish a good reason for her to remain in America. We will only know the truth once it is investigated further.

    For one, I would have to say the statement by the immigration attorney indicating that the fact that Nicki has paid all taxes is fairly convinving evidence that even the social security taxes have been paid. Otherwise, what do you think he might have meant by "all taxes"?
    Like I said, it might not matter that she was paying taxes. Where were the taxes going if the the name registered for the maid's SSN was different?

    Also, another question, if Meg Whitman is so against illegals being hired, how come she didn't report her? All she did was fire her?

    So..Heh heh!
    It might turn out that she paid taxes under an ITIN, after her SSN was identifed as belonging to a different name. According to this article, it is not uncommon for illegals to pay taxes even when they don't have a Social Security number.

    Point being, the fact that she paid taxes does not signify that she was legal, and also, Whitman received two letters from SSA indicating that the SSN was registered to a different name, yet she wants us to believe she didn't read the letters?

    As out-spoken as Whitman has been on hiring of illegals, her story appears a bit suspect.

    Illegal aliens don't need to steal or make up a social security number to give to an employer. There is another less illegal way in which the Government issues them a number.

    Step one:
    - apply for a Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) from the IRS:
    What is an ITIN?

    An Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) is a tax processing number issued by the Internal Revenue Service. It is a nine-digit number that always begins with the number 9 and has a 7 or 8 in the fourth digit, example 9XX-7X-XXXX.

    IRS issues ITINs to individuals who are required to have a U.S. taxpayer identification number but who do not have, and are not eligible to obtain a Social Security Number (SSN) from the Social Security Administration (SSA).

    ITINs are issued regardless of immigration status because both resident and nonresident aliens may have U.S. tax return and payment responsibilities under the Internal Revenue Code.

    Meg Whitman should have reported her, that would have been upholding the law.

    Did Whitman report her when she found out that she was illegal? NO.

    So much for Whitman not being at fault.

    Ok, so the only thing you are upset with is that she didn't turn her in? Wouldn't you have then been screaming how unfeeling Whitman is to the plight of undocumented workers in CA at that point?

    Tell us, will you be voting for Brown? Even after one of his staff members is heard on tape calling Whitman a "whore"?

    Where's the money trail for Nicky's attorneys fees coming from? Who hired Alred? Who referred Nicky to her? Why won't Alred answer that?

    Are you satisified that Brown wants this campaign decided on this distraction instead of telling Cali voters what he will do if elected?
